After presenting a strong Englishman and a high-level German, it’s time to present a highly rated Frenchman. Christian Bauer (2642) has confirmed his presence at the 11th BPB Limburg Open. Bauer already participated in 2015 and 2016, but he couldn’t really meet the high expectations then, finishing 21st and 6th. We did, however, notice an upward trend and because it’s the third time, this might actually just be the right time for Bauer.
